It’s Monday, let’s drag ourselves to our desks and get to it. I missed my normal infographic post on Friday and while some of us really dread Mondays this infographic seemed like an appropriate share.

Pretty crazy that of 45 hours 17 could be considered unproductive… Yikes. Time to unplug while you work, I’m sure that has to do with all our multitasking!
If you’ve been reading my blog over the last year you already know I’m a big fan of checklists. They’re great. They keep you focused and on task (well, they do for me anyway). The bonus that comes with that is the sense of accomplishment when you get to check things off. Even if your list ‘feels’ a mile long the act of crossing things off feels really good, progress is progress no matter how small it may feel.
Any tips for staying focused and productive? My best ‘quick tip’ to boost productivity is to set times through out your work schedule to check your email and only check it during those times. It’s so easy to open an email and find yourself ‘off task’ because you’ve decided it would only take you a ‘quick second’ to take care of that item. Just STOP that, it’s highly unlikely that the world will stop spinning if you only check it during your scheduled times.
Hope your monday is productive and don’t work too hard!
